Get Your New York City Public Library Card
Most people in Orange County may not be aware that anyone who lives, works or goes to school anywhere in New York (yes, anywhere in the state) can get a New York City public library card and download ebooks and audio books from the New York City library system without ever having to step foot in New York City.
Simply go to www.nypl.org, click on "Using the Library," and then click on "Get a Library Card." Provide the requested information and within weeks you will be sent your New York City library card. You can then go on the New York Public Library web site and download ebooks and audio books just like you do in our own Ramapo Catskill Library System. Now you have both library systems at your fingertips!
